Bisque Abduction

Bisque Abduction

  Her casket has a sterling lock — a key twelve-year-old sisters stalk, one summer day guardians are away. Bisque amputee they free, parts, dossier, undefiled in doily, French macrame, placed inside a curio, top shelf — you’ll have to wait to…

Vestal Valentine

Vestal Valentine

What love I’ve known I found on knees, by chance between iniquities. Fingers confined a backwards prayer, cutaneous chants without my underwear. Vestments, red wine a rosary, entwined lithe wrists you lead to liturgy, to genuflect before an altar, bare, a deity I…

Wet

The Math of a Princess

The Math of a Princess

is there’s just one of you — more in the corps, a dozen girls who covet the headpiece secured by thirty bobby pins.  Abhor your good fortune. Pretend to be friends. Peace is mathematically sound when it’s ten surrounding one, too…

Proxy

Proxy

Handpicked handmaiden, raven hair, a charm collected, jaunt in country air. Conveyed to castle, swift, by dainty, dirty arm, for sister, gift; he makes her mirror maid. A countess cloistered, brother bold, a lust rebuffed for years maturates manifold. No hunger…

Claudia

Claudia

First prey then predator, princess from plague of corpses, rats — white cross/black rain. Wood rot, footsteps in smoke, cadavers diseased, grave resolution to starve, bereaved. You sought rodents, stumbled on cries, found slovenly, cerulean eyes. Child devoted to a corpse.…
